SAM announce Cancer Research UK as new Charity Partner

SAM has announced Cancer Research UK as its new charity partner for this year.

Cancer Research UK, the world’s leading independent cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research, influence and information won the vote this year for our new charity partner. The team are looking forward to raising money for a cause that undoubtedly affects everyone, with 1 in 2 of us getting cancer in our lifetime.

Last year, the SAM team raised £5,000 for the Mental Health Foundation through various fundraising activities. The company also encouraged team members to take part in Movember to raise awareness of men’s health issues. Through this, they collectively raised £1,000 for a variety of personally selected charities.  In February, SAM donated £5,000 to the British Red Cross for the Ukraine Crisis Appeal. Moreover, our Donington team also bought supplies including nappies, food and toiletries to give to a local library gathering items to send to Ukraine.

SAM HR Manager, Shauna McErlain commented: “After a very successful year of fundraising campaigns for the Mental Health Foundation, we are looking forward to the year ahead raising funds for Cancer Research UK.  There was great participation from the SAM team in the activities last year and we are looking forward to some exciting campaigns later in the year”.

The SAM team will be organising various activities over the coming year to raise money for Cancer Research UK. The charity was formed in 2002, but the scientists behind it have been working to beat cancer for 120 years. Their ongoing work helps to prevent, diagnose, and also treat cancer, benefitting millions of lives all over the UK.

Keep an eye out on the SAM social media pages to see what we get up to.
